Cliff Digital Week 2021
We're excited to introduce Cliff College's first digital week, from 11-15 October 2021. This week will be an opportunity to discover what Cliff has to offer in a digital space and to find new ways to connect with the College. It will include events and resources that can be accessed on Zoom, Facebook, YouTube the Cliff College website and our online learning platform.
What to look out for
Cliff Digital Week will be a combination of one-off events, resources, livestreams and brand new content, available online throughout the week. Most of our content will be available to access for free on our website and social media platforms. There will also be some events where sign-up is required, and some paid events. You can find details of these below, as well as the full timetable for the week.
In addition to our timetabled events and free resources, we're offering 15% off all online courses purchased between Monday 11 - Sunday 17 October - so you can sign up to as many courses as you like during this week and get 15% off all of them! All these courses are self-paced, so you can work through them as quickly or as slowly as you like. The discount codes will be available from 8am on Monday 11 October on the individual course pages - why not look through and pick your course in advance?
